   报告摘要:

To justify the use of Wald's maxmin preferences in an asymmetric information economy, we introduce a mechanism designer who can convince/persuade agents to adopt Wald's maxmin preferences. We show that more allocations become incentive compatible if the mechanism designer persuades the agents to use Wald's maxmin preferences instead of Bayesian preferences. Thus, we justify the use of the Wald's maxmin preferences by showing that agents can be persuaded to use them in order to enlarge the set of incentive compatible allocations.
